Piano-Moving Experts Trace the steps involved in moving a full-sized grand piano. The piano must be fully padded and a special dolly with wheels attached should be positioned next to the piano.
Piano Tilt Method Next, if the lyre of the piano is sturdy enough to hold the piano's weight, a moving pad is placed under the lyre, the bass leg is removed and the piano is carefully pivoted to the dolly.
Turned on Side The piano is placed on the flat side and strapped to the custom-made dolly.
Heavy-Duty Ramp A heavy-duty ramp rated for holding weights up to 1000 pounds is placed over the steps to insure a smooth decline to the sidewalk.
Careful Here! While moving a piano, you must be very careful. It should be steered from both sides by men who are strong and care about the instrument.
Lift Gate and Ramp Pritchards Pianos uses a lift gate truck for all pianos under seven feet in length. This piano was over seven feet long so a 2500-pound-rated ramp was used. Don't even think of trying this yourself. Let the piano-moving experts at Pritchards Pianos help you if you need your piano moved. Call 941-924-1204.
